On Wednesday’s show, we learn more about Chevron’s acquisition of Hess Corporation and what it means for Houston.

Plus, from the House Speaker saga, to local election developments, to why the Lieutenant Governor is spending campaign funds on Israeli bonds, we seek context and clarity in our weekly political roundup.

Also this hour: Writer Viet Thanh Nguyen talks about his new memoir, A Man of Two Faces, which reflects on his experience coming to the United States as a refugee after the Vietnam War and growing up feeling neither fully Vietnamese nor fully American. He’ll be in Houston for an event with Inprint on Oct. 30.

And we visit an area pumpkin patch to learn about the process of keeping these staples of the Halloween season running.
